Golf: Sim Sisters Lead SBCC Women to Victory

At a stroke apart, Sumika and Asaka Sim finish 1-2 for the Vaqueros in WSC Meet No. 4.

Sumika and Asaka Sim finished 1-2 in WSC Meet No. 4 on Monday, leading the Santa Barbara City College women’s golf team to its third victory in four conference meets.

Sumika Sim, a senior economics major at UCSB who’s taking this quarter off to attend SBCC, was the medalist at 4-over-par 76 in the six-school competition at Tierra Rejada GC. Her sister, Asaka Sim, who helped Dos Pueblos High win the CIF Northern Regional last year, was a stroke back at 77.

The Vaqueros shot 321 to finish 16 strokes ahead of Canyons.

Coach Chuck Melendez said that the Sim sisters were both 1-over after nine holes. Jackie Molstad shot 83 for the Vaqueros, and Jenna Boyle turned in an 85.

“Our top four have been trading places, and I like that,” Melendez said. “We have someone different step up each time. We really liked this course.”

SBCC leads the WSC at 19-1, followed by Canyons (17-3) and Moorpark (10-10).

The Vaqueros return to action Monday in the fifth WSC meet at RiverLakes Ranch in Bakersfield.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
